Feng wins Blue Bay LPGA to claim No. 1 ranking
    2017-November-13  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CHINA’S Feng Shanshan shot a 2-under 70 in the final round to win the Blue Bay LPGA by one stroke in Lingshui, Hainan Province, on Saturday.

With the win, Feng is projected to become the first top-ranked golfer — male or female — from China.

The 28-year-old Guangzhou native, a winner in Japan last week, beat Thailand’s Moriya Jutanugarn by one stroke in the US$2.1-million co-sanctioned tournament between the China LPGA and U.S. LPGA Tours.

Feng finished the 72-hole event on nine-under 279 at Jian Lake Blue Golf Club to earn US$315,000 for her third title of the season.

“I’m really, really excited and very proud of myself and I think it’s special because I won this tournament to become world No. 1. I finished first in China, so I actually claimed the world No. 1 in front of all the people at home,” said Feng of her historic feat.

In accepting her trophy, the bronze medalist at the Rio Olympic Games said she hoped her world No. 1 ranking would inspire more Chinese to take up golf.

“I’m really happy about that and I hope all the Chinese are going to be watching me and the Chinese can play golf. Hopefully there will be more Chinese getting on the tours and more world number ones coming up from China.”

With both players tied at nine-under through 12 holes, the 13th hole proved the difference as Feng sank a 20-foot birdie putt while playing partner Moriya missed a 10-foot par putt for a two-shot swing.

Moriya quickly rebounded at the next, sinking a six-foot downhill putt for birdie as Feng missed a four-footer and had to settle for par. Feng gave the Thai more chances to get even on the 15th and 16th holes after missing makeable birdie putts, but Moriya could only answer with pars.(Xinhua)
